A home was given, abundant with toys,
For the puppy to play with and make so much noise.
“What is his name?” everybody asked, “we must know”
“oh, right, my mistake, this is Rollo”.
It wasn’t long before the puppy was scared,
A beast stood before it, with long tabby hair.
It purred and it purred, loud, long and flat,
We’d reached the first boss: The family cat.
They rolled and they tussled, all over the floor,
Dancing and prancing, but not a thing more.
Not a conflict was had in that entire time,
They’d play and they’d run, come rain or come shine.
A bit of time passed, where life was so quiet,
The pup became piggy and needed a diet,
His walks were increased, through the forests he leapt,
But when they got home, he slept and he slept.
He climbed into the car, this mechanical beast
As it started to move, the joy was decreased
They went to the farm, walking this and that course,
Now came boss number 2: The monstrous horse.
It galloped towards them, dust blooming behind
Whilst growling and snorting, the pup tried to hide.
It got to the masters, so big and so scary,
She didn’t mean harm, no, quite the contrary!
The pup was afraid, he was brimming with tension,
But soon realised the horse wanted attention.
She nuzzled and nested, right there where they stood,
To get her carrot, candy and scrub!
The sun was to set, it was time to go back,
The horse walked behind with a clickety-clack.
They got home that evening, the pup was so tired,
He curled up in his blankets until sleep was acquired.
Fast forward a little, the mistress wanted another,
Dog 1 meet dog 2, your new little brother.
He was fluffy and soft, like a small baby bear,
“Look out, be careful, Tonto’s just there!”
